The rehab has been put on pause

Hey everyone!

Hope everyone has been doing well. I just wanted to hop in and give everyone an update because although I thought I was getting better things kind of took a turn. The pain returned in the knee when I started put in 3 runs a week. So the doctor has told me that I should take a break and he needs to run some more tests. Now that was not exactly what I was hoping to hear after about 3 months of this on going rehabilitation.

When I heard this I was extremely frustrated and pretty disappointed. Now the next steps for me were to get an x-ray done which turned out clear. So I just did an MRI and I did not realize this but MRIs are in high demand. They are conducting those through all hours of the day. My appointment was at 2AM but I also had the option to book an appointment at 5AM otherwise there next slot was in March. I was super surprised about that. Now here is where things got little tricky because my doctor advised me to keep going for physio sessions. This is kind of where I used my own judgement since the doctor clearly was not sure why my knee was hurting. It made sense for me not to continue until he got the results and was able to tell me exactly what was wrong. Not to say that they just want me to continue paying for sessions because maybe he did not want me to lose out on the strength building I had built up in those 3 months. I did not see it as necessary just because I could continue doing the exercises I had been doing during rehab on my own.

So that was my personal opinion that I thought I could share with you. Not 100% sure if it is correct but in my head it made sense. If any of you have gone through rehab to find it did not work, how did you move from there? If you had any thoughts on that please let me know I would love to hear about them.

As always thank you for reading I hope you all are enjoying your runs and crushing your goals.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
